2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (10/12), courtesy of Papsoe (thanks!), shared with ozujsko.
Looked a bit old, but it’s probably from the 05/06 winter. Says it’s brewed by Albani, Ceres and Faxe. Interesting. It poured a medium sized white head sitting on a nice, amber body (they coloured the beer with caramel). Lively carbonation. The nose is odd and a bit repugnant (not too much); wine turning to vinegar, malt and honey can be felt... The taste is quite light, honey can be felt (not french style..), but that’s probably the glucose syrup, there are some lemony hops, and cardboardis present. It’s cute (I seem to be using this word far too much these days :)), not terrible, but far from impressive.

Disappointment, it would never be able to reach the quality of the blue version, because this tastes like a candy shop mixed up with pilsener.
